"The problem with talking about the Leviathan anthologies is that they elude categories more easily than they fall into them. There are a couple of obvious criteria for the Leviathan anthologies; the stories must be great and they should at least, allude to the theme. Beyond that, anything goes, and looking at the list of authors, you can see this is true. The writers here are the most daring that literature has to offer. In 'The Dreaming City', Ben Peek dreams of Mark Twain and Samuel Clemens, from Sydney to the Spirit World. Michael Cisco describes 'The City of God', following on the suggestions of Saint Augustine. And what more could anyone ask for than 'The Revenge of the Calico Cat', Stepan Chapman's guide to the garment district of Plush City."
